Did a little unexpected remodeling of my driver's side front fender yesterday when the tread on the tire decided to separate at 70mph. Luckily the body damage is minor but my fender flare and the end cap on my bumper disintegrated immediately.
First, carnage pics of course!
Luckily, the majority of the damage is just the rubber marks you can see on the lower part of the fender.
What was left of the tire when I got it pulled off the freeway.
Better shots of the tire
Tire I borrowed to limp home. No I did not have a spare with me... in almost 14 years of driving this is the first time I've been stranded and couldn't get myself back on the road. Luckily a friend of mine came through and brought me this tire and wheel.
This just cracks me up...
Anywho, the fender flares. No idea what they are, can anyone help out???
